Munitions, Murals, and Mosaics
The Torpedo Factory is a celebrated part of Alexandria that helps promote a thriving arts community. A former ammunition factory during World War II, it now houses media from a variety of artists, many of whom are locally based. Some have permanent studios in the building, while others just rent space. You can see nearly anything artsy here: photography, textiles, metal and glasswork, watercolors, pottery, and more. The Art League School offers different classes and workshops year-round. There are also monthly themed Second Thursday Art Nights from 6 to 9 p.m. Tip: Don't miss the third floor, which houses the Alexandria Archaeological Museum. You can view artifacts found in the area, some of which go as far back as the 18th century.
